Throw a Father's Day fete in the backyard or take it to a local park. Plates of Fearless Fried Chicken and Packed Potato Salad can be heartily eaten at home or some other celebratory location of your choosing.
Dad will never know he's sinking his teeth into crispy chicken that isn't fried nor will he miss the extra helping of mayonnaise that is replaced by a healthy vegetable puree in the potato salad. Best yet, the Feel Good Berry Crisp will satisfy dad's sweet tooth with anti-oxidant rich berries and a whole grain buttery topping.

1/4 cup whole grain flour (try wheat or spelt)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
6 tablespoons White Puree (recipe follows)
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup cornmeal
Pinch to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Freshly ground pepper to taste
4 skinless chicken breast halves, bone in, ribs attached
2 pounds small Yukon gold or small white potatoes
1/2 cup White Puree
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh tarragon and/or fresh dill
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped red or green onions
Makes about 2 cups
This mild-flavored cruciferous puree can be included in sauces, batters, creamy grain dishes, salads, soups, and stews. This is one of the Sneaky Chef's make-ahead recipes. Keep some handy in your refrigerator or freezer to quickly hide in your man's favorite meals.
2 cups cauliflower florets, steamed until very tender
2 zucchini, peeled, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 to 2 tablespoons water, if needed
While cauliflower steams, pulse the zucchini with the lemon juice in your food processor. Working in batches, add cauliflower and water and puree on high until smooth. Stop occasionally to push the contents to the bottom. If necessary, add another tablespoon of water to smooth out the puree, but the less water the better. White puree can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen in 1/4-cup portions in sealed plastic bags or containers for up to 3 months.
2/3 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup Flour Blend (equal parts all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, and wheat bran)
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/3 cup ground walnuts
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter, cut into bits
1 tablespoon walnut or almond oil
2 cups frozen unsweetened blueberries or mixed berries
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
